Are You Man Enough to Drive a Pink Nash Metropolitan?

Pink Nash metropolitan for sale
If you’re reading this site, you’ve probably come around to the idea of a Miata as an acceptable man’s car. In fact, on the whole, we’re cool with little cars. But dude…that’s a lot of pink.

Pink Nash Metropolitan for sale

Were we simply talking about an excellent-condition pink Nash Metropolitan, you’d have a great case for a cute girl car. Maybe an old lady. It’s the upgrades the complicate things: the Weber carb, 4-wheel discs from a Midget and a 3.90:1 rearend suggest this little strawberry shortcake might embarrass the occasional V6 Mustang (up to about 18 mph). If not, there’s always forced induction or any number of motorcycle powerplants to take advantage of…

  1. Sure. It's innate coolness transcends its homo-esque color.
    I'd make it a real sleeper though, if for no other reason than to emasculate the guys who are not man to drive this certain attention magnet.

    1. The Figaro is supported by musicians such as John Paul Jones (or, well, probably at least one member of Them Crooked Vultures) and Eric Clapton. The Metropolitan has been owned by musicians such as Weird Al and Phil Collins. Completely irrelevant argument? Probably, but I'm okay with that.

  2. It's a motorcycle engine away from being invited into my garage.
    And it'd actually fit into my second garage bay, which has a support beam smack in the middle.
    Good times.

    1. Might be.
      My understanding of the 50s was that pink, aquamarine and black were the only colors available.

  3. Ha! When we married, my wife one of those. It was red and white however. This one needs the Weber stripped off and the original Zenith put back. Those MG 3-main engines are pretty bullet-proof as long as you don't rev the shit out of them.

  4. Not only would I drive it with pride, but I'd install little multi-tune horns that got "tootle-tootle-tootle" in cheery tones, and a machine that blows little soap bubbles that float in the air from under the rear bumper as it bops and boops down the road. And I'd wear a hat.

  5. I absolutely would drive this, without one bit of concern for feeling secure in my masculinity.
    I must admit, however, that I can't help but think how awesome of a car this would be for Charles. And I don't even mean that in a stereotypical way. It's awesome, unique, novel, everyone loves it except Jeremy, slightly whimsical, even funny, but still demands a hell of a lot of respect. Just like Charles! Oh, and it's pink.

    1. It'd be like a fruitier re-enactment of the Nelson Muntz Vs Tall Guy in a Little Car scene from The Simpsons.

      1. I was thinking more along the lines of the bigass sword (think Braveheart.) Oh the other hand, dangling a land mine out your window does say a certain something about your level of commitment.

  6. You better believe I'd rock that, I'd even get a little yappy dog to go in the passenger seat.
    Cute puppy + Cute car = chick magnet / instant conversation starter.

  7. As a 6'4" tall dude I would prodly rock this thing. Too bad my aunt has the coolest license plate for one of these: NASHCAN. Maybe I'd get it backwards NACHSAN.

  8. Yes I would own that, but with a few modifications. I saw a tubbed and caged one at the local Hardee's but as my camara phone's plastic outer lens met with the hot cherry of a cigarette recently I was unable to get a non-blurry photo. It's definitely a conversation starter and head turner!

  9. If PeeWee Herman drove a car, this would be it. It should have been parked in front of the Playhouse.
    The bad part about making it a super sleeper is that you would only get to con people once. Nobody's going to say, "Hey, is that the same mint condition pink Metropolitan that dusted me off last weekend? Nah, wait. I think the tag is different."

  10. I would drive it. I'm secure enough in my masculinity to rock a midget car in '50s pink. Why not? Nobody else at the local cruise night is going to have one. Sure, it might get lost amongst the Shoebox Chevys and '70s muscle cars, but that's what the pink is for!

  11. Since General Motors and Chrysler entered bankruptcy last spring, GM has stolen the lion’s share of the headlines. The General has made front page news with new products, a government loan payback and first quarter profits, while Team Pentastar has quietly gone about the business of returning to respectability. Chrysler took another step towards its goal this week as the company paid back another $1.9 billion in government loans to the federal government. In total, Chrysler has paid back $3.9 billion of the $14.3 billion in loans the company received.
